The James Webb Space Telescope – A New Look at the Universe


Larry Toy, PhD, retired astronomer

 

The James Webb Space Telescope in its short time in space has given us unprecedented views of the universe. This is a brief history of the why and how of its creation along with its unique location in space and how it stays there. Finally, we will see some extraordinary photos and what they mean.

 

Larry received his bachelor’s degree from Harvard and masters and PhD from UC Berkeley, all in astronomy. He spent much of his career teaching astronomy at Chabot College and was honored as one of the first four outstanding faculty selected from the 15,000 faculty of the California Community Colleges. He was a founding board member of the Chabot Space and Science Center in the Oakland Hills. For the final decade of his career, Larry served as the founding president/CEO of the Foundation for California Community Colleges. He served as president of Lamorinda Village for the past three years.
